About JMNS

TheJournal of Materials NanoScience is a top-tier venue for discoveries in nanoscience, nanotechnology, nanomaterials and smart nanomaterials. The JMNS:

  • would get high Impact Factor by wide circulation and indexing in different scientific content databases.
  • provides free access to all of its research articles for one or more months for each issue,
  • would deposit published research articles in different databases. 
  • is an ideal home for authors seeking the broadest audience for their most important work.

The journal is led by Editor and an Editorial Board of peer scientists whose depth and experience ensure fair and competent peer review.

Sending your work to the JMNS

The journal considers research submissions in several categories. The JMNS receives submissions only through its website; submissions by mail or e-mail will be returned. 

Do you have a question about a manuscript you've already submitted?

  • When a manuscript is received and confirmed by the JMNS, an acknowledgment is sent via e-mail to the corresponding author. For any communication with us, please reference the tracking number assigned by the JMNS noted in the acknowledgment. 
  • In order to avoid confusion regarding correspondence, inquiries, and decisions, the JMNS will typically communicate only with those who are designated as corresponding authors during the submission process.


Manuscript submitted and processed for reviewing can't be withdrawn. If authors donot respond to emails for the reviewed and accepted manuscript, then the article will be published by the journal in as such format with a note 'withdrawn by authors' by no response.
